Andrew Long’s stint with the Penn State wrestling team is done.
A member of the team confirmed yesterday that Long has decided to leave the team, and his name has since been removed from the team’s roster.
On Aug. 12, Long was charged with attempted rape, aggravated indecent assault and indecent assault in connection with a sexual assault reported earlier that morning in State College.
That day at about 3 a.m., a woman awoke to find Long in bed with her and touching her intimately, the State College Police Department said.
Long refused to leave when the woman told him to "get out of here," police said. The woman then pushed Long out of the bed, and he responded by cursing at her, police said.
Police said the woman grabbed her clothing and cellphone, fled the house and then called her husband, who notified law enforcement.
Long was released on $100,000 unsecured bail Aug. 13, and waived his right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday, according to court documents.
A 133-pound All-American and Big Ten champion last season, Long arrived at Penn State after being dismissed from the Iowa State wrestling team.
Long, who would’ve been a redshirt junior with two years of eligibility, was a national runner-up at 125-pounds at Iowa State, and joined the Nittany Lions on Dec. 27.
He finished the season 20-2 and placed third at the NCAA Championships in Philadelphia.
